If you think you are beaten, you are
If you think you dare not, you don’t
If you like to win, but think you can’t
It’s almost certain you won’t.
If you think you’ll lose, you’ve lost
For out of this world we find
Success begins with a person’s will
It’s all in the state of mind.
If you think you’re outclassed, you are
You’ve got to think high to rise
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.
The battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man
But sooner or later the man who wins
Is the one who thinks he can.
William Packham (Someone's Dad )
